There is one fundamental step to make your organisation more effective, innovative and productive. That one step is to step into uncertainty, to step into what may appear to be unknown and unfamiliar to you. And as you step into uncertainty, you naturally try to make sense of what you encounter as you navigate your way through it. Human Associates work with you to make sense of uncertainty and help guide you to successful outcomes.
UNCERTAINTY AND COMPLEXITY
As we move into uncertain and complex situations, the main uncertainties we experience are about our own human behaviours and the behaviours of other people, individually and collectively. The conventional approach to working with behavioural uncertainty is trying to minimise it by using apparently objective approaches such as psychometric tools or behavioural inventories. These approaches tend to judge people mechanistically rather than actually engaging with them as human beings.
VALID AND RELIABLE
Although these seemingly objective approaches may provide the comfortable illusion of behavioural predictability, the reality is that they are poor predictors of behavioural outcomes. Rather than working with these invalidated and unreliable tools, It is far more effective to validate our perspectives and rely on our perceptions to successfully navigate uncertain situations. Understanding your perspectives and engaging with your perceptions also naturally empowers you, giving you choice and agency.
PERSPECTIVES AND PERCEPTIONS
You navigate through uncertainty by making sense of where you are and who you are. You make sense of where you are by forming perspectives on the situation, naturally increasing your situational awareness. And you make sense of who you are by generating perceptions about your self, naturally developing your self awareness. Human Associates create the Human Space for you to continually develop your self awareness and situational awareness.
THE HUMAN SPACE
Making sense of where you are in an uncertain situation is a process of exploring your perspectives and how you are forming them. Being more effective, productive and innovative usually requires a shift in perspective, to see things differently, to do things differently. The Human Space is a psychological sense making framework that guides you as you engage with your perspectives to understand where you are in an uncertain situation. Understanding where you are also gives you a perspective on how far you have come and what you need to do to arrive at where you want to go.
THE HUMAN EDGE
As you navigate through an uncertain situation by shifting your perspectives, you may also become aware that your perceptions of the situation are shifting too. To shift perceptions and shift behaviours, individually or collectively, means that you have to engage with the perceptual flows across the boundaries of the Human Space. The Human Edge describes these perceptual flows as they feed forward and feed back across perceptual boundaries. engaging with your perceptions naturally takes you to the edge of your self awareness and then beyond into becoming more aware of who you can become.
